CNBC’s Jim Cramer offered investors a list of clothing stocks on Friday that he believes will see upside as workers continue to return to the office.
“After a huge run in apparel stocks, I recommend registering on the low quality ones so you can swap in something better,” he said.
Shares of PVH, the parent of Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, jumped Thursday after the company reported better-than-expected results for its latest quarter and strong quarterly guidance.
Other apparel companies, including Abercrombie & Fitch and American Eagle, also delivered upside surprises this week, sending their stocks higher.

Kramer said he likes PVH Because it is stable in a difficult economic environment, and expects the company’s performance to strengthen when macroeconomic headwinds including a stronger US dollar, the Federal Reserve’s aggressive interest rate hikes and China’s COVID restrictions eventually end.
